Our body is designed to ward off disease causing microorganisms with great precision.

And, common sense would suggest that following daily healthy practices is the best defense to ward off diseases and keep a healthy immune system.

As a human species, we have been living with and fighting off the 'nasties' for tens of thousands of years. The real key is to live in balance with them.

So, we'll look at the best crystals to help your immune system, to help you sleep better and to help you reduce your stress levels.

Crystals to help your immune system

One thing the medical community is unified on, is the importance of boosting your immune system as your bodies best natural defense against the flu, or any type of toxicity.

Hence why our focus here is all about strengthening our immune system and to keep a positive mindset.

  1. Amethyst: You will see a recurring theme with Amethyst. It offers a number of protection measures, helping cleanse, relieve stress and help us sleep better.
  2. Amber: Amber is considered the Juice of the Sun and has a history dating back some 150 million years ago. The benefits of Amber are numerous and is said to greatly help the throat area. In fact, a whole industry has been built creating Amber Jewellery, Amber baby necklaces and Amber beads for teething.
  3. Clear Quartz: By far the most powerful healing stone, with the highest vibration, is clear quartz. You will notice that clear quartz points are used in all orgonite pyramids, which help reduce the chaos around us and create more balance and harmony.

Crystals to help you sleep better

Have you read Michael Walker's book Why We Sleep? Michael is considered the number 1 sleep expert in the world and he is the director of UC Berkeley’s Center for Human Sleep Science.

According to Walker, 'There does not seem to be one major organ within the body, or process within the brain, that isn’t optimally enhanced by sleep (and detrimentally impaired when we don’t get enough). That we receive such a bounty of health benefits each night should not be surprising.'

It goes without saying then, we should be doing everything we can to enhance our daily sleep habits.

Here are a handful of the best crystals to help you sleep better.

  1. Selenite: Selenite is considered such a powerful crystal for many reasons, including sleep. In fact, many people sleep with selenite tower lamps on their bedside tables for that reason.
  2. Amethyst: You want to place amethyst around your bedroom, including under your pillow at night. Amethyst has such a natural calming and soothing effect, which is why so many have amethyst all around their home.
  3. Rose quartz: There are many benefits of rose quartz, most of which relate to the heart chakra, reducing negative energy, increasing self-awareness and improving circulation.

Once you have your favourite crystals for sleep, it is important to set your intention with them. First you need to cleanse your crystals and then set the intention of restful, peaceful, deep sleep.

According to Walker, during deep sleep our brain cells shrink by 60%, creating channels for our glymphatic system to clear away the metabolic waste of the brain.

There has never been a better time to focus on better sleep. Make it your daily mission and focus your daily activities to help increase your 'sleep hygiene'.

Crystals to help reduce your stress levels

Stress is one of those silent health problems we need to be aware of and take measures to balance our levels.

But remember, stress can be both positive and negative, alerting us to dangers and keeping us safe from harm.

According to WebMD, Seventy-five percent to 90% of all doctor's office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.

Our recent blog post titled Crystals for Stress Relief, uncovers our top crystals to help you relieve stress. We all need to do everything we can to reduce our stress levels, during this time of uncertainty.

Here are our top 3 tips to help reduce your stress

  1. Practice mindfulness with your favourite crystals. You will notice how frequently we talk about mindfulness and meditation on this site. That's because there are many benefits of meditation backed by science. Make it simple. Grab your favourite crystal and get comfortable. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. You can start counting back from 10 to 1 and tell yourself, 'At the count of 1, I will feel deeply relaxed, feeling much better than ever before.' Then start to visualise the positive energy of your crystal radiating in and through your body.
  2. Exercise. Just get up and start moving. The more vigorous the better. Studies have shown that those who exercise more are are able to overcome anxiety far better than those who don't.
  3. Write down what is causing you stress. You might like to have your favourite calming crystal on your notepad while you are writing, too. Writing down everything related to your stress can have a calming effect on your body. Better still, finish off this session by writing down all those things you are grateful for in your life. Gratitude is such a powerful response to stress and anxiety. Once you have mastered gratitude, teach it to your kids and get them to do it on a daily basis.

Take your crystals outside, get earthed and enjoy the sunshine

Nature is a miraculous healing tool that we all need to stay fit and healthy, and to live a long life.

The first benefit of getting outside is to be connected to the earth barefoot, to experience the ultimate anti-inflammatory known as Earthing.

Stand or sit barefooted and get grounded to the earth with your crystals.

First thing every morning, get outside and place your feet on the grass. Even better if you are able to do this at the beach and watch the sunrise.

Many studies led by Clint Ober and the Earthing Institute have noted how healing it is to be connected to the Earth as often as possible.

That's right. Kick your shows off and run around on the ground.

At the same time, you will likely experience the healing benefits of sunshine through vitamin D.

Vitamin D has been one of the most studied hormones in our body since the early 1900's, with more than 50,000 pubmed articles written.

And recently, low Vitamin D levels (under 30ng/mL or 75nmol/L) have been strongly correlated to poor outcomes from flu-like patients, whereas levels above 40ng/mL appear to significantly boost your chance of fighting it.
